Excellent and very detailed documentary on the making of a classic. Filled with appealing trivia, exhaustive interviews with cast and crew members, and never before seen footage. Written by

Interesting documentary but doesn't cast a lot of new light on a famous subject
A documentary chronicling the making of the film Jaws from the scripting stage through to problems on shooting. With interviews from the majority of the cast, producers and the director himself.
I watched this as a DVD extra and was easily interested. Taking the viewer from the conception stage of the book right through to the final film this is a very interesting subject. The director and the majority of the cast make for interesting tales, however much of it is known due to the legend over the few years. As a result there's not a whole lot more to say and it fails to have more than one or two bits where I went `ohh' because I didn't know that.
However this is still of interest even if you know the story behind the film already. It's good to see Speilberg and several of the main cast brought in to make comments. Even where you know the story it's still nice to hear it from them themselves.
Overall this is of interest to anyone interesting in Jaws as a creation however from many it'll be old news told in a different way.
